Welcome Home and New Discoveries

After being on holiday for a week, I’m back in a sunny London full of energy! Sometimes a little break is what you need!!!

And what’s better than discovering that there’s a new kid in town? Yes, because ARKET just opened a shop on Regent’s Street

The Scandinavian brand from the H&M group is a ‘modern day market that offers essential products for men, women children and the home. ARKET in Swedish means ‘sheet of paper’ and it alludes to concepts like Archive, Archetypes, Market.

Minimal Valentine’s Day Gifts

I’ve never been a fan of Valentine’s day: if you’re single it’s just a horrible day when the all world seems to remind you about it (I’ve been there so many times), but also as a couple I don’t think you need a special day to celebrate love….

That said, a part of me still loves and hopes to receive a little gift, something minimal that maybe makes you remember a special moment you spent together.
So here’s my minimal Valentine’s day Gift List:
